He was clearly the brightest on the planet...but why? What was different about his brain that it was so better than others?
So, if we are spiritual entities having a physical experience, this makes perfect sense. Our Spirit inhabits a vehicle, a biological being, some time after conception. For the next 7 years the Brain is busy wiring itself to respond directly to the environment. It is "programming" itself for the basic life purpose: to survive in whatever environment it is found. The biological being then becomes more and more self-sufficient over time. During the next 7 to 10 years, our Brains can delete some of the downloaded information it no longer needs, so it clips that information from its net. What is left is what we bring into adulthood and carry around usually for the rest of our lives...our subconscious.
Our Mind, on the other hand, works with the Higher Self. Your Mind has the ability to connect to every other Mind, and even further than that, to the wisdom of the Universe. Is this what Einstein could do? He said that he wasn't smart, but that he simply spent a lot of time thinking and focusing on something. When he concentrated on a certain topic, I believe he was connecting to the Higher Energy, and likely was able to concentrate that energy into brilliant ideas, and the formulas and conclusions he would build from them was his ability to do the math,
In our every day world, we spend a great deal of time taking care of things: work, chores, eating, sleeping, entertainment, the kids, the dog and the like. Our Brains are focused on navigating through each day with little time to contemplate as Einstein did...few of us have that luxury. When we're done our day, how many times did we actually connect to our Mind? Did we take the time to concentrate on our Higher Energy? Probably not, and sad to say, this is where the wisdom truly is.
Think about all the brilliant Minds...what do they do with their day? What do you do with yours? Are you taking care of business, or are you contemplating your success or your next brilliant idea by focusing your attention on your Higher Energy....where, by the way, resides all of the best answers.
Hmmm, time to meditate.
